Surveillance video is one of the clues police have to find the man who they believe went on a crime spree in Davidson.
More than a dozen homes and cars were broken into this weekend. They all happened very close together, in an area that doesn't see much crime.
From Ashby Drive to Delburg Street in Davidson, thieves hit hard. Someone broke into more than two dozen vehicles between early Sunday morning and Monday.
One of the victims, who didn’t want to be identified, was stunned when Eyewitness News told her how many cars had been targeted.
“That's very surprising, yes,” she said. “I don't know if it's a gang or what's going on here, but I wonder where these people are coming from.”
The wave of break-ins spanned all across Davidson. Twenty-five cars were broken into, and some homes were broken into, all in usually quiet neighborhood subdivisions.
A business caught video of a man around 4 a.m. Monday who detectives believe is the one breaking into cars and some homes. Police said the video shows the suspect unloading stolen items, and then he walks off, hauling it all away.
Alice Cratts, who lives in a neighborhood where some of the crimes happened, said she's glad to have her dog on guard, but said she's already making her own changes.
“I started definitely locking my doors, and I even keep my registration and papers and everything inside my house,” Cratts said.
There is a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. If you can help, call the Crime Stoppers unit in Davidson at 704-896-7867.
